freedom of religion in the right of government to regulate society, even when such regulations may interfere with religious doctrine because i think those are two points that are important here. there was a time in this country before 1965, when it was okay for a state to outlaw contraception spanner couples. several states had them for years. they were on the books lingering on the books for years and finally the supreme court in a case called griswold versus connecticut says it is unconstitutional to prohibit married people from using contraception in the privacy of their bedroom. does the constitution have a provision that says government shall not prohibit married people from using contraception in their bedroom? no, it does not. it does have something called due process and within due process accords eventually found there was a right of privacy. and for my libertarian friends in the crowd, a name something you've been seeing for years, which is the government needs to get out of our life to the extent possible and we don't want the government to regulate what we do with our m

don't believe that it's ever been a belief in religion. this is what i'm going to say that the christian part of barack obama's history made him did not have. another save you some of them. i believe he's christian. i have been to his church and i believe that is what he believes in. as christian and i converted to islam because i felt for women it is more protected because of their traditional role of father and mother in the home with her mother was allowed to be at home and have children with protection of the father. i thought i was a positive situation for me. it takes women off welfare and we don't have that game situation in prison situation that we would have here. but israel, i don't think we should follow their lead because i think the world looks at how americans get along with each other, not how israel gets along with america. israel's approach and the religion is an eye for an eye. they do not follow the christian approach. so when things happen to them in the international war, i feel that followed i for an eye and american doesn't follow that actually t
